By the best-selling co-author of Inner Tennis, here's a book designed to help musicians overcome obstacles, help improve concentration, and reduce nervousness, allowing them to reach new levels of performing excellence and musical artistry. Fascinating hard cover volume that will be invaluable to anyone seriously interested in music — professional or amateur.

"Recently afflicted with tryout tribulation and performance pucker, the results of recent auditions have suffered. Angst and terror were largely unknown until just the past year or so. 'The Inner Game of Music' has provided a framework within which to begin to control these destructive tendencies. It begins by identifying two basic components of one's Performance (P). They are potential (p) and interference (i). The reasoning is simple: One's performance is equal to one's potential less interference, or P = p - i. This explains why, sometimes, I've felt that my performance was rotten, despite believing that I have lots of potential: I've been shooting myself in the foot through letting the interference, or 'i', get out of control. Through 'The Inner Game of Music', I'm learning how to identify ways to reduce the 'i'. Practice and lessons serve to increase 'p'. Hopefully, I'll soon be able to approach an audition with the confidence of knowing that I'll perform up to my potential."
